- Thoroughly clean the radish by scrubbing with a brush or, scrape off dirt with a small knife. Peel skin only if necessary. Cut radish into matchsticks of about 0.3cm thick.
- Place radish in a large bowl, and sprinkle salt all over. Toss to coat evenly. Set aside for 20 mins until the radish sticks soften and some liquid is released.
- Drain and gently squeeze out excess liquid from the radish sticks but do not rinse. Add in the rest of the ingredients. Mix well using your hand. Do a taste test and add more salted shrimp, or fish sauce if necessary.
